On Ocean Songs, guitarist Mick Turner strums in grand and mournful sweeps while violinist Warren Ellis draws a rough, heart-pulling bow. On top, David Grubbs bumps lonely on his tom while keeping time with scratchy snare whispers and flickering tips and taps on the cymbals. It's a gorgeous blend that is fully informed by folk forms yet still manages to bristle with electricity. Dirty Three may seem like some mutant folk trio from the old country, but underneath there is a rock band--a dangerous, fire-breathing bunch with lust in their hearts and murder in their eyes. It's these rough edges that allow Dirty Three to speak directly to a boozy, well-worn place where sadness and beauty duke it out. --S Duda

Format: Audio CD
This is one of the best albums that I have heard, although it might not be to the taste of everyone. The title is very apt as the music brings to mind tidal washes of sound, rising and falling, at times breaking out from melancholic swells into extended crescendos (for example on 'Authentic Celestial Music').
On first listen the music is fairly one dimensional (each song sounds similar to the one that preceded it). This is a fair comment - and the album is not for those who want individual songs, complete with lyrics, hooks and refrains - but in the case of Ocean Songs it adds to overall impression. The music is led by the violin's melody line, which is often repetitive and relies on folk/gypsy influences rather than classical ones. Subtle changes, however, are perfectly complimented by the loose drums and slightly distorted guitar, which picks erratic arrpegios and chords. The combination of the three is quite unique, despite the fact that the bare bones of the songs are simple melodies and chord progressions (albeit beautiful ones as on 'Sea Above, Sky Below'). The 'Dirty' moniker is almost as apt as the 'Three': the edge to the guitar and rawness of the violins and drums make the music paradoxically grimy - paradoxically because it works so well alongside the engaging melody. The overall impression of the music is loose, melancholic waves of melody, occassionally surging into powerful workouts on a couple of codas.

The Dirty Three are an amazing 3 piece from Australia. Their mixture of haunting, feeling violin, supporting and understanding rhythm guitar countered by precise yet unpretentious percussion gives this band a truly unique sound. And to see them live Melbourne's Regent Theatre is indeed spiritually reviving.
